Thirty years ago today.
Nothing much to celebrate except that the lads and the Kelpers made a good try of an impossible situation.
...but, the famous parting words of "Don't make yourself too comfy mate, we'll be back" eventually proved true enough.
We'll be celebrating on 14.June, though.
Personal note to Mum: I'd wager you remember my catching the fleet reports on BBC shortwave in the days just after this, disturbing the office and all. Then again, I didn't exactly mention why at the time. ((wry grin))
